ABU DHABI, May 23, 2022

With the rising interest in electric vehicles spreading across the nation, the first-ever edition of the annual Electric Vehicle Innovation Summit (EVIS) is under way in Abu Dhabi from May 23 to 25, 2022. 
 
Organised by Nirvana Holding and hosted by Adnec, the summit has hundreds of electric vehicle companies and businesses in complementary industries in attendance to showcase recent developments, up-and-coming technologies, and sustainable strategic solutions.
 
Motivated by the rapid growth of the Electric Vehicle Market in the Middle East and North Africa, EVIS is turning to be the pioneer trade show and conference for electric vehicles in the region. 
 
5,000 participants
The event is attended by over 5,000 representatives from leading companies, including investors, engineers, R&D professionals, and government officials. The UAE’s missions ‘Economic Vision 2030’ and the ‘UAE Energy Strategy 2050’ support the move towards more energy-efficient and sustainable technologies. 
 
It has become a priority to invest in the Electric Vehicle sector as it is highly favourable for the future. EVIS is the lead facilitator in the transition to clean energy and early adoption of Electric Vehicles across sectors in the Mena region.
 
Speaking about the event, Alaa Al Ali, Group CEO of Nirvana Holding said: “We have been seeing a rapidly growing interest in electric vehicles in the region and we are proud to bring an event of this scale to Abu Dhabi.”
